Prime Video has unveiled a first look at the long-awaited Fallout TV adaptation.

The post-apocalyptic drama — which is directly based on the popular video game franchise — will follow the citizens of 1950s Los Angeles, who are forced to live in underground bunkers to shield themselves from radiation, mutants and other threats.

The show focuses on bunker Vault 33, and pictures show Yellowjackets' Ella Purnell as Lucy, wearing the iconic vault jumpsuit and stepping into the outside world.

We also get a glimpse of the Brotherhood of Steel plus Invincible's Walton Goggins as a bounty hunter who goes by the name The Ghoul.

Other stars in the series include Twin Peaks' Kyle MacLachlan, The Wheel of Time's Xelia Mendes-Jones and Emancipation's Aaron Moten, as well as Moises Arias, Johnny Pemberton, Aixa Kendrick, Leer Leary, Dave Register and Rodrigo Luzzi.

Westworld's Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan are on board as producers, with Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner acting as showrunners, writers and executive producers for the series.

The original Fallout games first came out in 1997 and are notably set in a retrofuturistic world.

Speaking previously about their desire to bring the games to life, Joy and Nolan said in a statement: "Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time.

"Each chapter of this insanely imaginative story has cost us countless hours we could have spent with family and friends. So we're incredibly excited to partner with Todd Howard and the rest of the brilliant lunatics at Bethesda to bring this massive, subversive, and darkly funny universe to life with Amazon Studios."

"Fallout is an iconic global franchise, with legions of fans worldwide and a rich, deeply compelling storyline that powers it. And Jonah and Lise are the perfect storytellers to bring this series to life," added Albert Cheng, Chief Operating Officer and Co-Head of Television at Amazon Studios. "We're thrilled to join with Bethesda to bring Fallout to television."

Fallout will premiere on Prime Video on April 12, 2024.
